I have a half written post written about last weekend's activities, that made a huge impact in my life (and hopefully with more positive impact to come), but I want to write about this weekend.
I picked my grandma up from the airport on Monday night. I was slightly annoyed because I showed up two hours early...because I basically can't read some days...but oh well. Of course I brought Maggie because she kinda loves the airport and she kinda loves going ANYWHERE AND EVERYONE.
We had booked a three day trip to NYC...but guess what....it got cancelled. The political mess, the time of the year....ended in a long phone call with me yelling at the tour company....but still our tour was cancelled. We were supposed to leave on the morning of my birthday...so I was really bummed...but in the end, I think it worked out for the best because my grandma is still recovering and well, we got a lot done here. My place is REALLY coming together...but there's nothing like having a grandma to nag you (and HELP YOU!!!) get your ish together. Photos were hung, garbage cans were repaired and floors were cleaned. We even figured out how to fix the dryer together. #teamwork
We had to skip the birthday donuts because I was seriously overloaded with sugar after my french toast....which was fine with me! The next morning I popped out to a "real" donut place (ie: made on site with interesting flavors)
The next day I had planned to take my grandma to St. Joseph's Oratory, which is made up of various buildings, and most famously the Basilica.
